Skip to comments.The Only Job Ex-Journalist Jay Carney Can Get is at MSNBC
Posted on 07/05/2014 7:08:18 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Jay Carney used to be the Washington Bureau Chief for Newsweek. He worked for Time reporting on Moscow. And if these reports are correct, then after spending years flacking for Obama, the only gig this former “journalists” could get was at MSNBC.
How pathetic and predictable.
Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC.
Carney is in talks for a contributor position.
If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.
Except those people weren’t career journalists. Carney was.

such a pathetic excuse for anything
He proved to be a loyal commissar that lied and confabulated on a daily basis. His vile legacy is secure. Whatever he does in the future can never change history.
It’s a match made in Heaven: Carney and MSNBC.
And so begins his short and rapid slide into obscurity. Like most MSNBC “contributors”, he’ll be reduced to an incoherent public-access cable show soon enough.
No more fancy (and heavily-photoshopped) luxury house. He’ll have to auction his jumbo-sized Jenga set on eBay.
The Carney and Sharpton Show..now there’s an inspiring concept,
Isn’t he going to write a book? I just assumed he would write a book about his time at the White House. And make money just as Hillary hoped to make tons of money from her book.
He can be Mr. Mom and let mom bring in the big bucks.
How do MSNBC shows stay on the air? MSNBC consistently has far lower ratings than either CNN or Fox News, or any other cable news outlets. So their ad revenues have to be in the toilet. How does the NBC parent company make any money from that channel? Or does the NBC parent company want to prove they are liberal, and subsidize this channel with profits from other subsidiary companies???
Axelrod and Gibbs got contributor gigs at MSNBC, but they aren’t on the air that much lately. Axelrod has his job at the University of Chicago and is probably lining up new Political Clients. Gibbs may have “broke his pick” with NBC because of some pretty harsh criticisms of some Obama policies. Don’t know if anybody will take Carney seriously in the future.
SO nothing has changed. He is still spokesman for the President.
Comcast/NBC/Universal/Time-Warner will hire any radical POS the cat drags across the threshold...
MSNBC is the black and queer channel
Kim Jong Un isn’t hiring?
In the future? That's why he's unemployed and unemployable NOW - he has no credibility left.
If MSNBC is looking for a proven liar, I suggest Jon Lovitz or maybe Joe Isuzu...
When he would show up on TV speaking for obozo I actually felt sorry for the pathetic little creep. His depressions appeared very obvious.
Wonder if he’s worth $600,000 ?
Worthless P.O.S. working at a worthless propaganda source.
This pathetic butthead says the sun’s shining and comes up in the east I’d check it before believing it.
Course he isn’t going to bring too many to view his lies at this “network”.
MSNBC is NBC’s.....safety valve
I gotta go with Lovitz, wearing the springing eyeballs.
Carney always reminded me of Chip Diller, the sneaky little Omega frat boy played by Kevin Bacon in “Animal House.” (REMAIN CALM!!! ALL IS WELL!!! ALL IS WELL!!!)
I would say, made in Hell.
LOL. I can actually picture that.
Don’t snark until we find out what his salary is.
Crony Capitalist regime affiliate.
Carney can redeem himself if he writes that book and spills what he knows about obuzzo to the world. We need a good truthtelling about the scum in the white hut. That would freak out valjar and obuzzo.
“The Carney and Sharpton Show..now theres an inspiring concept,”
Add Chris Hayes to the mix and you’ve got a trio that would give The Stooges a run for their money.
The odds of that happening are about as good as Hillary turning a thousand bucks into 100 thousand bucks in ten months of cattle futures trading.
This is kind of ridiculous.
Cable news and the internet, particularly free web advertising, have killed newspapers and magazines, which struggle now for subscribers and ads.
Print publications are much too expensive to produce, especially given shrinking ad dollars. Even this “Frontpage Mag” running the silly Carney story is internet-based.
So for Carney to go back to a job in print was highly unlikely, no matter who he worked for or how absurd he had to be day to day in defending a corrupt administration. The medium has changed, regardless of his message.
MSNBC is a good gig for him. Fits him well.
Sounds about right. Pair him up with Sharpton.
I should have read further before commenting. LOL
Comcast has plenty of money for these programs.
Pray America wakes up
The flaccid Peter Principle at work.
JMO, but why wouldn’t TIME re-hire him? If you say it’s “because Carney proved to be a leftist tool with no shame,” that sounds like a plus at TIME after about 1980.
TIME still PRETENDS to be centrist. They should just come clean about their bias, like Newsweek. (Does US Snooze still exist, by the way?)
On the lighter brighter side Carney could help Sharpton pronounce those 'long words' he has so much trouble with...
Pronounce we much.
“I just assumed he would write a book about his time at the White House. And make money just as Hillary hoped to make tons of money from her book.’
Hillary made good $ on that book. It was the publisher who lost big.
I don’t think Carney will be complaining about his huge salary.
The publishing house was currying favor with elite liberals... and possibly buying future access to Clinton... It's like those million dollar speeches Hillary gives in Arab countries like the UAE... this has little to nothing to do with the official cover story. Carney doesn't have future access to sell... he would have to push 'new exposed dirt' or 'great insight'... and we know Jay lacks great insight...
Still I think Hillary’s publisher was hoping to make back more $. Few thought her sales would be this bad.
Every publishing house wants it all - a best seller, happy customers, good will among those they admire...
